I may be terribly wrong but I believe he was being facetious with that comment.

Hopefully the emotion in that statement alone will make you think.
You like this city...let me guess. You're probably family-oriented and a christian.

Than this city is definitely for you. You're probably a boring person too who never steps outside the box.

....no need to try to defend yourself I got you all figured out

If you are working a low paying job somewhere else, it is just as low paying here.
Why ya gotta knock the tourism industry? Tourism is BIG MONEY! Sure there are entry-level low-wage jobs at some of the theme parks, but the same holds true with all fields of work. You have the upper-level high-wage jobs along with the entry-level low-wage jobs. Plus tourism jobs are FUN!

Default Stay Away?

LOL, cracks me up when people who relocate to an area will jump on the bandwagon and tell newbies to stay away. Good thing no one treated them like that when they moved to a new area.

Odd, the name of the city is San Antonio...I don't see any one particular person's name on all the signs other than San Antonio.

no, i think most respondents just tried a different tactic - reverse psychology. this questions have popped up and answered in this forum gaziliion times - and they have always been answered straight forward like how nice to live here, quality of life, etc...

maybe you didn't get it cuz you were not from here. and i can't blame you because i know you can't tell which negatives mentioned are irony, and which ones are real... im from here and i thought it was funny because i know its the opposite...

i don't thinkg they are serious in closing the gate for you...

Rockin' The TriCities

San Antonians are on the whole really open and welcoming people, but part of me does want to hang out on the outskirts of town with a sign that says,TOWN FULL NO VACANCIES.

In all seriousness, if you do move here you will be welcomed. My new neighbours were definitely overwhelmed with the attention they received from everyone on the block. We're just friendly like that.
